The creative process

These are some of the new shades from earlier in the week. Handel was floating around the studio from the CD player and all felt right with the world. It has been raining at long last and the pressure in the air, that has seemed so very oppressive, has gone!
I find that after 2 or 3 days straight of working in the studio, experimenting and ideas come very quickly. I have often wondered if this is due to the colours being used at the time, or the creative process itself. Perhaps it is simply a state of mind or a good environment.
Maybe having a clear slate with no immediate pressures or deadlines is conducive to productive studio time. What EXACTLY is it that makes it so easy to produce satisfactory work on one day and then feel like you are crawling up a mountain on the next?
